Fernanda Rivera notified me that GWU has opened their indoor triathlon to members of the DC Tri Club. See below for all the details.
From the email:
The George Washington University is hosting its 3rd annual Indoor Triathlon on Sunday 23rd of February , and we would love to extend the invitation to DC Tri Club to sign up for the race. This is the first time we are opening the event to non-members of the facility, and we think it's a great training race for your members, withouth having to pack all their gear or traveling far away.

You doing it, Ed? I'm not sure if it's too late to register, but I can be convinced to do it.
I did this race in 2004 (I think the first time it was offered) as my first triathlon. Be sure to read the rules carefully; when I did it, the transitions were not timed, so I rested a bit, changed into comfortable clothes, etc. No one else had read the rules, so they rushed through it, and I wound up winning --even beating the boys! First and last time that ever happened but it motivated me enough to sign up for another race and the rest is history.
Good luck to everyone!
Ed, is registration still open?
I just emailed them. Yes, it's still open. Just email the contact at the top fo the post.
